Speakers to go with a X-Fi Fatality Pro?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I need some new speakers for my new sound card. I don't have the room for much more than a 2.1 set, unfortunately. I know, waste of the card's potential. What are the best bang for the buck 2.1 sets out there? I've heard the Logitech Z-2300 set is nice. I've also heard alot about Klipsch ProMedia series. So what do you think?

Only the xfi Fatality professional super extreme serious gamer professional fatal speaker series of course!!

I have the Z-2300... love them. Was gonna go for the ProMedia wanted them a little bit more but found a better deal on the z-2300's

If you can go with the Klipsch ProMedia GMX A-2.1 Computer Speaker System, they have the better componants than the original ProMedia and a better design than the Logi's because of the tweeter with phase plug design.

However between the Klipsch and the Logi's its a 6.5 - 8in subwoofer difference. So if you like your music loud with a lot of bass go for the Logi's.

I personally like Klipsch ProMedia. I don't have them, but Klipsch are knowon for their quality.

Id definitely have to recommend the Logitech Z2300's, they have amazing sounds quality and clean bass after you get them all setup.

And from a comparison standpoint,
My mom owns a pair of Bose 2.1, and an older set of Klipsch Promedia 2.1 (tehy last forever)
and I have modded Z5300's and a set of Logitech Z2300's

Edit: BTW, I own a pair of the Klipsch 5.1 Promedia, and I could not be happier with them. As for the 2.1, I can not say for sure but if they are anything like the 5.1 then you will definitely piss the neighbors off.

Well he asked for the best bang for the buck, and I doubt you can get a $6000 speaker set that sounds much better
